Mrs Payne would like to say...
From Tuesday 5th January, Year 5 work will be online via the website. This work (as from next week) will be exactly the same work we will be teaching to key worker children in school. Maths and English work will be updated on a daily basis. Please complete as much work as you can. Do not worry if you have not got enough time - Try to complete as much of your maths and English lessons every day! Thank you parents and children for trying your best in these very difficult circumstances!
Remember to click on the links below for additional work should you manage to complete everything I post. Phew!
And finally... your afternoons should be fun and creative so... go outside when you get chance and embrace any fine days we may get. Help with the garden, go on a bike ride or draw/ paint/ make something amazing!
Below the tasks, I have posted the QR code to log into our year group Seesaw page.
Hope you've all had a great half term!
Not long now before we are all back in school.
